A Greenwich nonprofit that offers mobility to disabled residents delivered meals with the help of police Wednesday after its buses were vandalized.
The Transportation Association of Greenwich found that thieves had stripped the catalytic converters from eight of the buses, leaving the vehicles unusable.
TAG uses its buses to get elderly or disabled residents where they need to go. The organization also works closely with Neighbor to Neighbor to deliver groceries to 500 food-insecure Greenwich families.
The police department sent over three cruisers which were stuffed with bags of non-perishables and shuttled to their destinations.
The nonprofits say this goes beyond 'protect and serve.'
Neighbor to Neighbor says food insecurity has only gotten worse in Greenwich during the pandemic. The organization feeds about 1,200 individuals every week.
Volunteers at TAG say they hope to have those buses back on the road by the end of next week.
